Face Sweats - Or how can I avoid the Menopause?

I have reached a 'certain age', my body its getting all geared up to having the menopause.

I have face sweats - it is perhaps one of the most horrible disgusting things.There are great droplets of face sweat, my glasses steam up, I can't see.

I do not glow, I do not perspire, I sweat. UGH! My children make this noise 'errrrrr'.

I also feel like I am pre-menstrual most of the time and my brain is functioning at about 75% capacity. That may be just after I have had some wine...

I thought I would read up on the menopause.....OMG.... it is a horror show - don't do it to yourself.

Hair thinning, vaginal atrophy, anxiety, sleep problems, urinary tract 'issues' - dear lord. This can last 3 - 5 years...holy crap!

I am reading all this stuff, and being told this is a normal part of a woman's life and in some cultures it is seen as a sign of women reaching a time of wisdom and respect in their lives. 

Three - Five Years of hideousness!!!!

No, no, no. I am not going to do it. I refuse. Periods where horrible but this sounds much much worse. 

So please could you all send your suggestions of what I am going to do to avoid this completely -  the face sweats are bad enough. Thank you. 

Me and my friends, blissfully unaware of what is ahead of us.





  1. I was suffering from horrible whole body flushes for about 3 months, plus sore boobs, general menstrual stuff and so went to doc. Young girl listened to me and then went through 'the options'. HRT, some other drug, look up dietary methods E.g soya or just put up with it all. Returned home and did the same as you and googled. Like you I was horrified. Was reluctantly going to go down the HRT route though as felt awful and the idea of no sleep for five years was horrendous but AMAZINGLY all the sweats, achy joints,fatigue etc stopped a few days later. So far they have stayed away! Going to pretend they won't come back and I am not in the 'peri menopause' as the nice but far too young doctor told me. La la la Fingers in ears.😁
